A comprehensive survey of the atmosphere of the Los Angeles Basin was conducted during the period August 18 to November 14, 1969. A large number of contaminants were determined continuously and periodically, and readings of pertinent meteorological factors were made at two ground level sites and in vertical profiles above the ground sites. In the report the following areas are discussed: The equipment and methodology used in conducting the study; The program design and test operations; The data file collected during test operations; An evaluation of the instrumentation and procedures used in the program; A summary of chemical parameters measured at the ground sites; An explanation of the data obtained for September 29 and the interrelationship between the data from the various program phases; and Miscellaneous observations regarding interesting or unusual occurrences.
